Description

It was discovered that Ghostscript improperly handled parameters to the rsdparams and eqproc commands. An attacker could use these to craft a malicious document that could disable -dSAFER protections, thereby allowing the execution of arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2017-8291)

Kamil Frankowicz discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the color management module of Ghostscript. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2016-10217)

Kamil Frankowicz discovered a divide-by-zero error in the scan conversion code in Ghostscript. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2016-10219)

Kamil Frankowicz discovered multiple NULL pointer dereference errors in Ghostscript. An attacker could use these to cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2016-10220, CVE-2017-5951, CVE-2017-7207).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
